The coast of Louisiana is wild, beautiful, and for some forbidding; yet it is very fragile as well. The consequence of the BP oil spill due to the explosion of the Deepwater Horizon oil rig of April 20, 2010 was visited on four different states, with cataclysmic consequences on the wildlife and scenery. The marshes and cheniers are not to played fast and loose with. There are some nonhuman losers when an oil spill occurs. In addition to these birds, the charismatic brown pelican was affected.
